You'll have fun trying these old fashioned egg shake recipes once used by pharmacy soda fountain operators. Similar to an eggnog yet uniquely different, some call for milk while others contain sparkling soda water. These refreshing beverages are not only delicious, but spark great conversation.

The Dispenser's Formulary or Soda Water Guide (1915)

When an egg is added to a milk shake before shaking it, it becomes an egg milk shake. Acid syrup flavors should never be used in an egg shake as they tend to curdle the milk or cream.

Safe Use of Uncooked Eggs

The old fashioned egg shake recipes below call for raw, uncooked eggs or egg whites. To avoid any health risk, please visit my Eggs and Salmonella page for simple instructions on how to safely use the old time recipes.


Egg Milk Shake

1 ounce any desired flavor of syrup, 1/4 glassful finely shaved ice, enough milk to make 12 ounces, 1 egg. Shake and strain. This formula makes a genuine egg milk shake. Use very little ice. Charge 15 cents.

Sportsman's Shake

One fresh egg, 1 dash strawberry syrup, 1 teaspoonful sugar. Place in a glass in the order named and fill with milk; shake well and strain in glass. Top off with grated nutmeg. Charge 15 cents.

Egg Vichy

One egg, 1/2 glass shaved ice, 1 ounce pure water. Shake thoroughly; then add slowly, while constantly stirring enough Vichy water (or soda water) to fill the glass. Price—12 ounces, 10 cents.

Chocolate Egg Shake Recipe

2 ounces chocolate syrup, 1 ladleful cracked ice, 1 egg, enough milk to nearly fill glass. Pour the syrup into the glass, add the egg, and cracked ice, then fill the shaker about one-third full of milk and shake.

Finally, add the balance of the milk to fill the shaker about two-thirds full. Shake well and strain into a clean glass. Top off with a little powdered mace, nutmeg, or cinnamon.

The above formula is recommended for making a chocolate egg shake. Price—12 ounces, 15 cents.

Egg Chocolate

1 ounce chocolate syrup, white and yolk of 1 egg, small quantity of crushed ice. Shake well, then add plain carbonated water sufficient to fill tumbler. Stir with twist bar spoon, strain, then pour alternatively from tumbler to shaker, and serve. This drink is rather thin and should not be priced at more than 10 cents.
